It's old fashioned, it's fun, it's family friendly and it's one of the best weekends of the year in Oklahoma! September 28th and 29th – in Dewey, Oklahoma.
Saturday is the Tom Mix Festival in downtown Dewey, and almost everything except the vendors are free. Music, parade, kids parade with prizes, kids games, gunfights, saloon girls (also family friendly), stick horse rodeo and much more. The fun starts at 8:00 am with a Miles for Mammogram 5k run. The day ends that evening with boxing matches right on main street, just like in the early days of the Dewey Roundup.
On Sunday the fun moves to Prairie Song, the best kept secret in all of Oklahoma. Prairie Song is a recreated 1890's pioneer town built with the old methods and materials. Start the day with a chuck wagon breakfast in Songcatcher Hall, followed by cowboy church Stroll around the village and visit the buildings full of 19th century furnishings and equipment, have lunch at one of the food vendors, and shop the visiting merchants.
